The day before they were published by four journalists in sixty-seven countries of the world.

According to the representative of the president in the parliament, MP from the BPP Iryna Lutsenko, Petro Poroshenko is clean before the law. She explained that the purpose of creating of the offshore by the president was not to avoid taxes, but a plan to transfer Roshen into a blind trust in order to move away from business management.
